Linux sendmail server

by Steve Cody In reply to Linux sendmail server

If you are new with Linux, then this web based admin tool will help you tremendously. Go to www.webmin.com/webmin. Get the Webmin tool. It is awesome. You can use it to configure Sendmail, DNS, DHCP, Samba, etc... You already have everything you need with Redhat 7.1 to run an SMTP server as well as provide access to mailboxes with POP3. You can use Webmin to help configure it.

Also, to learn almost anything about linux, go to www.linuxdocs.org. Read the HOW-TO's.

Hope this helps.
